Video footage on Facebook taken by Thai Rath showed the moments when a top policeman’s son was taken on a reenactment of a horrific crime that has shocked Thailand.
Watcharaphon Sima, 20, or who the media have dubbed “Ai For” was taken by 100 cops to the house where he repeatedly stabbed 56 year old Sanom Kaesorn and her 11 year old grandson Attakowit Monthajan a week ago.
A crowd of 70 villagers turned up trying to get at the suspect. After the reenactment at the house he was taken to apologize to the coffins of the deceased.
It was the day of their cremation.
“Ai For” is the son of a senior policeman, said Thai Rath.
He broke into the house in Nong Khawai sub district of Lomsak, Petchabun in the early hours of July 25th after arriving on a motorcycle he borrowed.
He claimed he thought the house was empty.
The occupants woke up and he murdered the young boy first with a knife. He then stabbed his gran 40 times.
It was all for a mobile phone and a one baht weight piece of gold jewelry.
Thai posters online said Thai punishments were pathetic – some like Pear Eastough called for the death penalty in this case.
Police said that justice will be done for the victims and their family. They said the investigation had been intense resulting in the arrest of the suspect within seven days.Facebook.
